The NSW Budget is powerfully positioned. Net debt is down, expenses are under control and the triple-A credit rating is maintained.
The NSW Government has done the hard work in repairing the Budget over the past three years while getting on with rebuilding NSW.
The Budget commits $863 million for major construction works on the North West Rail Link and $398 million for WestConnex – the biggest rail and road projects in the country.
There’ll be an additional $929 million (on a like for like basis) for health, $612 million for education and half a billion dollars over four years to strengthen our child protection system.
